It’s not out place to comment at length on family dynamics. The fact is, most of our dogs over the years have come to us because of problems with the humans, not the dogs. That having been said, occasionally there’s a case that especially leaves us shaking our heads. This one makes us nauseous.

This absolutely beautiful senior Doberlady has been in the same home since a pup. She’s now nine. She was a house dog until one day she counter surfed and knocked over a freshly cooked casserole. As a result, she was relegated to the garage where she had a crate set up. There was a fan in the summertime and a blanket over the crate in the winter. She’s being surrendered at the insistence of the woman of the house because one of the son’s dogs doesn’t get along with this lovely lady and the son has threatened not to bring the grandkids over until this nine-year canine family member has been discarded.

The dog’s human dad is mightily distraught - he loves the dog dearly - but the old saying, “If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy” seems to be proving true once again.

Now, of course I can understand a grandma not wanting to be separated from her grandkids, but it seems to me (not that anyone is asking) the son is way out of line on this one and mom is put in the needlessly unreasonable spot of having to choose between her grandkids and her dog due to the son’s lack of imagination and integrity. (Did I say that out loud?)

Anyway, as you can imagine this will be an extreme heartache, confusion, and upset to this wonderful dog who has only ever known this one home. And she will of course want to be back in a home once again as soon as possible. Reality being what it is though, it’s hard to place a dog this old simply because of age, so we’re dearly hoping some one of you has the heart and the ability to take a beautiful, healthy, loving, rejected-for-no-fault-of-her-own Dobergirl into your home for her remaining years and give her the love and attention she certainly deserves.

One of our volunteers says this:
    “She does not look nor act like a 9-year-old.  This beautiful girl ran around like a 3-year-old!”

Another volunteer’s thoughts range to the bigger picture of injustice to pets in general.  He speaks of “those innocents who have provided unconditional love and devotion and yet are the victims of those whose lack of compassion and understanding is unfathomable to the tremendous community of animal lovers everywhere.  This is one of the sweetest, most gentle and loving Dobergirls you will have the pleasure to come to know.”

Here’s what her loving human dad said about her:
    "She loves to ride with me in the cab of my truck. We take walks together but usually not more than two miles. She loves chasing squirrels, has caught three that I know of, two this past year. Not bad for a 9 year old! I also like to take her with me into our local Lowe's; they allow that with well behaved dogs, and she’s never an issue. She is a good watchdog regarding deer in the yard, and she will always let us know when a vehicle comes down our or our neighbors’ driveway. And she’s always friendly to the mailman and UPS/Fedex drivers."

You can feel the love this man has for this dog. If your heart is touched by her story and you can give her a permanent home, make an appointment to meet her once your application is approved. Come and spend a little time with her and see for yourself what a dignified and loving lady she is. Perhaps you’ll be the fortunate one to restore her to a proper home and be blessed by her love, devotion, and companionship for the remainder of her life.
